Ubiquity Music 99 Items
After visiting San Francisco on their honeymoon and falling in love with the city, DJs Jody and Michael McFadin went back to Southern California, sold most of their possessions, and moved to San Francisco to open the Groove Merchant record store in 1990. Within a year the small shop had built a reputation the world over as a place to find rare records and learn about new sounds (remember Beastie Boy Mike D on “Professor Booty”: This one goes out to my man the Groove Merchant, comin’ through with the beats that I’ve been searchin’). With start-up capital of one thousand dollars and little knowledge of the record business, the Luv n’ Haight record label was launched. In 1993 the company incorporated as Ubiquity Recordings and has since grown into a company with multiple label imprints, a worldwide distribution network, clothing label and an unusually high success rate at placing music in film, TV and commercials. Incidentally, the name Ubiquity was chosen because of the label’s mission to make unheard music ubiquitous. They use 100% combed cotton shirts with a super-soft vintage feel and slim fit; each tee includes a hangtag with a download code redeemable at iTunes for 5 free tracks from Ubiquity’s favorite albums and exclusives from forthcoming releases.
